Very nice indeed, but why didnt post this in you previous sketchbook? You have found some intresting shapes in ship designs. Compositionally I think it needs something in lower left corner: landscape, buildings, planet surface etc. Something to indicate location and scale.
its a good scene. the clouds and background are real nice. I think the ships have a nice design, but they seem a bit too fuzzy. Maybe try to sharpen them. Try not to use a soft brush, i guess.
Good job though, keep it up.
Compositionally: My eye tends to move from the left ship to the right ship. I think this is due to the fuel trail of the left ship is acting like an arrow, leading my eye the second ship. Also, my eye tends to be drawn to the circular shape at the center of each ship (me thinks its a little busy) So, if you wanted to draw attention to your cloud detail with that light spot in the left part of the composition, I'd consider emphasizing it more through more contrast or more saturation. Although, personally, I like the slightly desaturated look of this particular piece. EDIT: Also, I just the men at the front of the ship, you might want to consider adding some detail/contrast to them, since they add a sense of scale and a real interest to an otherwise fairly abstract looking piece.
Now, how did you achieve your technical skills with a Wacom? I'm using a tablet and am having serious difficulty just making a simple drawing. How long did it take you to adjust?
By the way, I'd really appreciate it if you dropped by my sketchbook.

THanks a lot for the comments, im getting a lot of help from different forums, this is great. As far as my wacom, it took me about a week to get used to it, i learned that i had to somewhat alter my drawing technique, but thats fine becuase it doesn't affect me when i'm drawing on paper.
Looking good dude, keep going, you'll be a regular Ryan Church in no time.
